The dreaded sweet tooth.
It always sneaks up when you least expect it.
If you’re anything like me, you can go all day without ever even thinking of indulging in something sweet. But as soon as the sun goes down, it’s like the sweet tooth kicks in to overdrive and the only thing you can think of is something sweet.
I’m not picky when it comes to sweets, most days. I mean, in general I try to stay away from them, but some days I have no other choice but to submit to the cravings of my sweet tooth.
The force is strong with that one, you know!
I’m assuming I’m not alone since the candy industry makes about $33.6 billion in sales each year. Woah! Obviously we are eating more candy than I thought.
Making Rock Candy is kind of like a chemistry lesson right in your own kitchen. It’s fun to make with the kids, just make sure they are older and can listen very carefully to instructions.
If you don’t have a candy thermometer, get one! Hard crack is very hard to reach with just testing the sugar in water. They’re pretty inexpensive, too. You’ll also need a jelly roll pan if you don’t already have one.
But let’s get to the Strawberries and Cream Rock Candy recipe. That’s why you came here!
